Solar Packages & Pricing

RADIANTEC COMPANY OFFERS the solar heating components that you need both individually and in the form of convenient "packages". Most customers should consider a package for overall value and ease of installation.

Installation packages are "do it yourself friendly" They allow the reasonably competent do it yourselfer to have the benefits of a solar radiant heating system at a reasonable cost.

You may find that the installation of radiant heat is one of the best home improvement projects that you have ever done.

What is it like to own a solar energy system from Radiantec?

What is it like to build a solar energy system from Radiantec?

RADIANTEC PACKAGES ARE PRE ENGINEERED to result in systems that are reliable, long lasting and efficient. Most customers will begin with a good solar domestic hot water heater as a point of departure and then add popular features like underfloor radiant heating, snow melting, root zone heating for the garden and pool heating. Cost benefit is best when there are multiple uses for the solar energy.


YOUR RADIANTEC CUSTOMER SUPPORT PERSON can easily customize a package to suit individual needs. You can have as few as one 4'x 8' solar collector, or many more, depending upon architecture and individual preferences.

There is a need for design discipline. If you just put up a couple of solar panels and "do something", the results may not be very good. Dot the "I's and cross the "T"s. Do it right and consider a professional contractor who will have the tools and experience that can be very valuable.

SOLAR DOMESTIC HOT WATER PACKAGES



OPERATION - The sun shines upon the solar collectors and warms the antifreeze solution within. Whenever the solar controller senses that there is solar energy to be harvested, a small pump circulates the warm antifreeze to a heat exchanger within the solar storage tank and then back to the solar collectors to be reheated. The pump will run either fast or slow depending on the amount of solar energy available. In the spring, summer, or fall when there is excess solar energy, the hot anti-freeze solution can be diverted to other uses such as radiant heating, pool heating, or root zone heating by opening a valve on the Solar Supplements Manifold.

SOLAR OPTION I SYSTEM


Animation illustrating our solar option 1 system.


Heating tubes for underfloor radiant heating are added in parallel to the domestic hot water heat exchanger. Ordinarily, a concrete slab with compacted gravel beneath will serve as the solar energy storage. The great strength of the Solar Option One System is its efficiency (as defined by the net amount of solar energy that is harvested).


Radiantec's Solar Option I system combines solar domestic hot water production with the direct production of underfloor radiant heating. This direct production of underfloor radiant heat results in the highest possible solar collector efficiency because it enables the lowest possible solar collector temperatures. This design approach is a considerable breakthrough in solar energy design that has won numerous awards.

SOLAR OPTION II SYSTEM


Animation illustrating our solar option 2 system.


Radiantec's Solar Option II is a combination of Radiantec's "Open Direct" heating system and a solar energy supplement. The "Open Direct" system uses the building's domestic hot water heater to make heat instead of a boiler of furnace.


Solar Option II is attractive because it is a more complete energy system that includes back up space heating and even some limited free cooling. The solar collection efficiency is very good but it does not quite match that of the Solar Option I because of the indirect production of underfloor radiant heat.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONAL ZONES

ROOT ZONE HEATING FOR GARDENS

This is an attractive option for gardeners. The growing season can be extended by 3-4 weeks in the Spring and 2-3 weeks in the Fall. Warmer earth temperatures result in greater productivity.



SNOW MELTING FOR DRIVEWAYS AND WALKS

Plan for about $1/ft2 for the slab materials.



POOL HEATING

You will need a large SST heat exchanger that will cost around $500.
